Most likely you have used oils to finish a hairstyle or make your hair wet, but few people (at least in Brazil) have the habit of using facial oils. This has to do with the most prevalent type of skin around here (oily) and our hot climate, but why not take advantage of the winter, when the skin is usually more dry, to test this type of product?
Believe it or not, facial oils can be used even on oily skin! First of all, it’s worth mentioning that oily skin is not synonymous with hydrated skin, okay? In addition, this category of oils that can be used on the face are very technological and even help to balance the oils that are produced naturally. Not to mention the fact that they promote deeper hydration, prevent water loss by forming a “barrier”, provide a certain luminosity and can even combat signs of aging.
Okay, but how to use these oils? Each case is different, but I think in the beginning it is better to apply two to three drops (or as many as indicated on the packaging) in your night routine to let the product act for a longer time without external factors. In fact, many of the “darling” oils are suitable for night use, as is the case with Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
Of course, you also need to consult a dermatologist to find out which product is best for your skin type, where it should be applied and at what time of the day, ok? Who has oily skin, for example, should avoid mineral oils with silicone and, obviously, do not pass the product in the T zone, which is usually the most critical. I guarantee that your dermatologist will have many other recommendations 😉
Another advantage of light texture oils that is absorbed faster than the thick moisturizers used at this time of year. Nor can you ignore the fact that the skin has a much more velvety and soft texture after application, after all, this effect is practically instant! Delight, right?
Where to find?
To prove that this product category arrived with everything in Brazil, nothing more fair than making a selection with some of the most suitable. As I said before, these are super-technological oils and the vast majority are imported, so the prices are higher when compared to ordinary moisturizers.
I hope you like it and maybe get excited to try a new texture this season!
